    The Balcony

    A middle-eastern city in the midst of war. Rebellion, Martyrdom, blood, love and fantasy all come together in this timely retelling of Jean Genet's The Balcony. The clergyman who would be Bishop, the Hanging Judge, the Chief of Police, the four-star General all feed their fetishes at The Grand Balcony, a brothel catering to the elaborate fantasies of the occupying forces and their court. While the rebellion outside grows stronger, Madame Irma orchestrates grand illusions to feed their fantasies of power. As the war rages, fantasies start to crumble as the realities of war make their way into the sanctum of the Grand Balcony; the line that separates fantasy and reality is blurred.
